Here is a .pdf version of the final production drawing of the new 6.5x47 Lapua. Click the attachment to view/download the actual file. You will need Adobe Acrobat to view.
I've also included a screenshot. Dimensions are metric in mm. For inches, divide by 25.4.

I want you guys to know that this diagram was created at my personal request for this website. It helps to have friends in Finland. Thanks to Erkki Seikkula and Tommi Tuuri of Lapua.

I formed a case tonight using a piece .243 brass and my 6mmBR body die. I necked mine down to 6mm as for my purposes this is probably what I will be doing with this new case. I think it would be fun to neck down to .22 as well. I took a photo of the formed case next to the 6TBR and the .243 Winchester for comparison.

It is pretty close to a 6x47 Lapua. I don't know if it would actually fit a chamber yet. But I wanted a representation of the case to fondle and to use as a rough gauge for playing with some ideas I have. All I did was take a 6TBR case I had already formed and ran it up my Redding 6mmBR body die in a few increments until I got the correct length from the base to the shoulder junction. Then I trimmed to 47mm length. BTW a 6TBR case is easily formed by just running a .243 Win case into a Redding 6mmBR body die until you get a 6mmBR top end.
